I think you're expected to stack the nav keys like

Home
PgUp
PgDn
End

I'm not entirely sure why there's a R2 Home key tho, is the idea here Del/Home/PgUp/PgDn with no End?

Alpha + base is enough to fill 2 board, just curious, if I have a full size keyboard, what the other could be, from what I see, back space is not sufficient

Most likely an HHKB-like layout with 7u space, R2 1.5u backspace, split backspace and split right shift 👍

This one is growing on me with the renders in different lighting.  Wish there was a light pink 2.25 Enter.

Are there any renders of this on a plum Iron165 or a rose gold (anodized aluminum) board?

Should have some more renders coming but I don't think any of them will be of the plum/rose gold color (plum color could be a cool combo). I'll follow up with the render artist ✌️

Hey, just wanna know if I bought base + alpha, can I build 2 sets for 1 wk and 1 wkl layout? I can see a extra 'Tab' in base kit for this purpose but I didn't find any extra normal 'backspace'.

Think the best you could do is use this to do a split backspace, replacing the larger /| with something else. Of course then you'll need a board that supports it as well. The alternative would be to just add on the symbol mods and only replace the backspace key (or all of them).

Zeelobby is correct, would have to go split backspace and use the R2 1.5u backspace, the easiest second layout would be an HHKB-esque one 🙏

Thanks for the answer! it will be dope if we can have an extra backspace or a novelty key if that doesn't cost too much.
Anyway, great topic, I'm in.

Hey! MOQs are for each kit, 250 for base and 100 for the other kits, if any of them dont make their minimum they wont be produced 🙏

Hey all, waiting to hear back if TKCs fulfillment center can mail out the stickers to the first 50 buyers for me (would be a much smoother operation). If thats not possible Ill mail them out personally as originally planned. Expect an update when they get mailed out 👌✨

Currently have slow internet where I am (traveling) so just to confirm, because its hard to verify on my iPhone, Hiragana + Icon Mods will cover a 65%, e.g. Think65 or 60% Rama M60, right?

A bit sad that the light pink modifiers are not going to be available for TKL layouts--reserved for the numpad and 40% sizes.   Otherwise an overall super cool set.

Hey... 40's already have bonus desk space, why do they get bonus pink modifiers?!

I like this kit, I want this kit, I have it in my cart, it's ready for check out - but holy shnikies is it a heavy price tag.

Unfortunately not since we don't have the illustrator file for the legends, the kit render was some photoshop magic.

It's because there's no R1, so the magenta starts on R2 and the R3 enters get the pink 😅

Hey all, TKC just dropped an embroidered FF✨ cap and hoodie with the small version of the Future Funk logo! Ships 2-3 months after the pre-order period ends, or if you email TKC support, you can combine it with your existing keyset order and receive them together.

I gotta say i have never seen the deskpad outrun the actual base kit in pre-orders in any group-buy i have followed or participated in.

This is hilarious to witness xD

We've decided the sticker sets for the first 50 TKC buyers will be sent with the keysets when the time comes to make things simpler for their fulfillment team and so everything can arrive at once. Apologies to anyone who expected them sooner 😭

ive been watching this for too long but i had to hold back until rent was paid lol. so much is happening this month, this year already has so many great sets! honestly the desk mat is what sold me from the jump and what kept me on board, really looking forward to it coming together on my desk. really fresh set!

im in now for a base, 40s, space bars, and desk mat. really hoping to see those numbers go up for the 40s.

I'm STILL undecided if I'm going to join, because of the price... also my choice would be Hiraganas and Icons, will it not be a hassle to get CandyKeys to refund the whole order if Hiraganas doesn't make it?

Anyway, reason why I'm commenting is I wanted to ask why the 1.5u icons backspace is red and not rose coloured. Bit late with that, lol

Hiragana will be made 100% and the 1.5u backspace should be light pink, looks like a render error 🙏

I was holding back for a long time, but decided to finally pull the trigger on the base kit, light alphas, icon mods and spacebars (plus both of the deskmats, they're top notch). This is easily one of the cleanest and freshest dark sets in a long while.

The only thing I regret is that the light alphas kit doesn't have F5-F8 keys. If it had them, this purchase would legit be a double GMK set. @kema - if the sales surpass the MOQ enough, would it be possible to add F5-F8 keys to either the light alphas or the icon mods kits?

Maybe you can confirm possibility of F5-F8 on light alpha before gb end?

This is the artist's instagram. They would probably love it if you told them yourself. :) Here's the post with the desk mat art.

I think this is the first time a deskmat has surpassed the base kit, or were there others?

A bit annoying, but there was no way I was going to risk missing that deskmat!
Also, it's probably my fault too for waiting until the last moments before pre-ordering the sets I wanted...

Thanks anyways, and thanks for this beautiful set too I just love it

Speaking from my experience, it's not really FOMO. When I see a set I like, I usually wait till the last couple of days to join. With the exception of MoDoL, you gain absolutely nothing for joining early, so waiting till the last possible moment might be beneficial. You can see if the set is successful, if the kits you want will be made, if any other cool or maybe even cooler sets drop in the meanwhile and you don't freeze a substantial amount of money for a month. I appreciate people who join group buys early, but it doesn't surprise me at all that the last couple of days have huge spikes.

As for this group buy, congrats to kema for a massive kit count and quite possibly the best selling desk mat ever.

This is typically true. One recent exception was the trainwreck, GMK Wavez, where you were only eligible for collab artisan raffles if you joined on Day 1 (and the GB runner never mentioned this :rolleyes:)

Also f-keys either in the Hiragana or in the Icon modifiers kit should have been proposed, as it would have allowed us to have a complete TKL set without purchasing the base kit, but I think that it won't be a problem for most people

GMK Honey had a sale on alt alphas day one too.

Other recent GBs with early bird discounts include GMK Modern Dolch Light and both profiles of Godspeed.

That last spike is crazy...
Vendors buying up extras for resale. Happens a lot. Especially when a Deskmat or kit is super successful. They're banking that once people start posting glamor shots on Reddit the scramble will be real.

Oh okay I understand.  I never thought about this but it makes a lot of sense.
Thanks for the explanation.

Actually, those numbers include no extras.

*EDIT* Nevermind I saw it was answered above. It was certainly a tale of two stories, from the little bit slow uptake to the absolutely smash it home finish!

There will be lots of extras, vendors still taking awhile to finalize the count but will share when its done ✌️

Awesome, that's great to hear. I was definitely inundated with GMK sets all at once, and could only afford the base at the time, haha.

Sharing the update from TKC's Discord here:

FUTURE FUNK UPDATE -- Just wanted to let everyone know that we are looking to receive the GMK Future Funk sets in October of this year.  Also for those who ordered a deskmat, we are looking to receive those mid June (next month, woot!).  There will be extras (we typically order a bit more) which can go out once GB folks receive their orders.  Stay tuned for the announcements here.

Once it starts shipping, the vendors will most likely have extras for sale. You just need to be quick - they're usually gone in a matter of hours.

I have bought this with white alphas and I am going to pair it with a think 6.5 v2. What colour scheme do you guys think would look better, polycarb or e-white?

Personal preference obviously, but I really like it on white boards in the renders.

Hi friends, small update: received the first round of samples. Here's some photos against the plastic reference chips. The light pink, light blue and magenta are approved. Will be requesting slight tweaks to the yellow (slightly brighter) and dark purple (more blue) ✌️

The dark purple also seems to be a little bit too dark.

The most upsetting thing about all the GMK delays is the possibility of this set being delayed. I think it's the one I'm most excited for that I don't have yet.

Glad the purple is being revised to be a little less dark, otherwise colours look great. Looking forward to getting this hopefully before the end of the year fingers crossed.

If anyone has a light alphas kit theyve changed their mind on, Id love to take it off your hands. Ill buy any other kits you need to get rid of with it, if that helps.
